What are the names of molds that are neurotoxic (besides Black Mold)- if there are any?

All I can find on my own for this Q is Black Mold. :/

Apart from Black Mold (Stachybotyrs), Fusarium and Trichoderma are types of mold that are also known to produce neurotoxins. Most toxic neurotoxins from mold are called trichothecenes. They are known to be neurotoxic and are produced by more than 60 types of mold. http://www.esgtesting.com/Portal/Documents/US%20Army%20Biowarfare.pdf has more on the same.

Both answers are wrong from beginning to end. A little research proves that there's but little link between mold and neurotoxicity. That article claims LSD can kill you when Albert Hoffman - the man who discovered it- took an heroic dose 100's higher than the LD50. He survived to tell the tale and hijack the consciousness of millionss.
The article claims trichotecenes are neurotoxic where there is no evidence backing it up - anywhere.
That source has no author or signs of authenticity. Were it leaked or published it would have logos or at least blacked out sensitive info.
There's an entire industry devoted to racking up money from mold neurotoxicity lawsuits. Lucrative legal enterprise.
